A couple of years ago Google started downranking websites that weren’t using https protocol. So, if you wanted your website to show up well in Google Search, you needed to buy an SSL certificate and install it on your website.
This is, in my opinion, when building websites stopped being fun.
I have never not had this process be a giant BS hassle. I’m currently fighting with one right now and honestly. It’s enough to make me Amish.
